Steve C.

Just saw this - too late to view live. Are the presentations available to view afterward?

I would suggest any independent artists take notice of this clause in the Internet Radio Fairness Act.

SEC. 5. PROMOTION OF A COMPETITIVE MARKETPLACE.
(a) Limitation Of Antitrust Exemptions.—

(1) EPHEMERAL RECORDINGS.—Section 112(e)(2) of title 17, United States Code, is amended—

(A) by inserting “, on a nonexclusive basis,” after “common agents”; and

(B) by adding at the end the following: “Nothing in this paragraph shall be construed to permit any copyright owners of sound recordings acting jointly, or any common agent or collective representing such copyright owners, to take any action that would prohibit, interfere with, or impede direct licensing by copyright owners of sound recordings in competition with licensing by any common agent or collective, and any such action that affects interstate commerce shall be deemed a contract, combination or conspiracy in restraint of trade in violation of section 1 of the Sherman Act (15 U.S.C. 1).”. http://bit.ly/fullirfa

Re: "...to take any action that would prohibit, interfere with, or impede direct licensing by copyright owners of sound recordings in competition with licensing by any common agent or collective..."

Nelson:

The essence of this is to ensure individual artists have the ability to enact "direct licensing," and that no agent, collective, or group of artists could prevent them from doing so.

This helps an artist maintain a right to bargain on their own.
